Nafy Flatley ’06 wants to balance her work life with her family life and spread joy while she’s at it. With her business, Teranga, she does just that.
Mark Hurtubise EdD ’89 waged and won a three-year battle against systemic racism. And he’s not done yet.
As a former journalist and long-time union advocate, I can’t tell you how encouraging it was to see the “30 Under 30” and the piece on the future of journalism in the May 2021 USF Magazine. Not one, not two, but three of the 30 under 30 are advocating for workers or immigrants (or both). It’s especially gratifying to see the young women advocating on behalf of some of the most exploited workers in our country — domestic workers. Hats off to Miriam Uribe, Vanessa Barba, Edwin Carmona-Cruz, Lucas Waldron, and Gabriel Greschler — and hats off to USF for producing grads who truly live the Jesuit motto: men and women for others.
